Dr. Junhong Zhou’s career goal is to help older adults preserve and enhance their functional independence by designed new strategies to maximize balance and reduce the risk of falling. His specific research objectives are to: 1) identify the dynamic characteristics of human balance control in aging and age-related diseases, and 2) translate these discoveries into improved therapeutic strategies for older adults. To achieve these objectives, he has developed expertise in the application of nonlinear signal processing techniques to the physiological signals relating to human locomotor control and the non-invasive techniques to image and stimulate specific brain networks involved in the control of balance when standing and walking.
